Type: Generative Art + Data
Edition: 1/1 from a collection of 3
Size: 3400x3400
Data source: Western constellations & Star data
Created: 2021

Looking at the night sky as a sphere with the stars and constellations drawn along the outside, and our Earth a speck in its center. This piece highlights the present within the context of the past and future. With the present in focus it shows where the stars came from 200,000 years ago, and how they will continue to move 200,000 years into the future, morphing our constellations along the way.

The constellations in our sky feel like they are ever constant. However, nature is always changing. The vast distances and timescales of space make the movements of the stars almost imperceptible across generations. However, when viewing them across hundreds of thousands of years, it becomes apparent that our skies can, and have, looked vastly different than they do now.

This piece is part of a collection of 3: the past, the "present", and the future.
